    Well it looks the same to me, it may look different in the pics because your holding in the first two pictures, and the angle of the pics are different. I would just trust the seamstress to alter it to fit your body, since I’m sure she knows how to do so better then we do!

    ps.. The drss is STUNNING on you!!! I love how happy you look in it.

    @garlandlygil:  Firstly, your dress is gorgeous as are you! You look so happy! I see what you mean about it looking lower. Perhaps cause like you said it’s a bit big up top still? And You look petite so it looks like it can be a bit tigher around the waist area? Hip area? But with the right alterations, it’s going to be perfect! Congrats and good luck!

    @garlandlygil:  You are so pretty and so cute (love the smiles). As for alterations:

    • I think you need to take the bodice in more. That will help more with the “straight-look” fit that you want to avoid.
    • Definitely have your seamstress pull the dress up a bit, and then take it in (as it is sitting much lower than the first photo). 
    • It does seem too big around your hips. So, I would have her fix that, as well. 🙂

    @garlandlygil:  I get dresses custom made regulalry, and I definitely bring in photos of what I ultimately want it to look like. I think having a photo and explaining exactly what you want would help the seamstress when she’s altering it. 🙂

    @garlandlygil:  Lovely dress! it’s really pretty on you already and I’m sure more alterations will make it perfect.

    I agree with the PPs that it needs to be nipped in more around the waist and hips, and also lifted up a little higher.
